I bet you don’t hear that often enough. But think about it. What do you do, with your time, for others, for a job, for a hobby?
You are not an amoeba (although they are pretty cool, too). You do not exist in a vacuum. And who you are has an effect on those around you.
Do you bring baked goods to the office? That’s awesome.
Do you feed and clothe your kids with no help from anyone else? Brilliant work.
Do you love wholeheartedly? Beautiful.
Do you ask after the health of the lady at the checkout? So kind.
Do you get up every day, ready to face the world again after going through a rough patch? That’s fantastic.
However we live, and whoever we are, we have value. And in the crazy, funny, beautiful, hard, scary, sad and difficult world we live in, it’s really important to remember that.
So here’s to you. You are freaking awesome.
